Thoughts inside the Paper Image


without comments


late offering


My local gallery – Confluence Gallery, Twisp, WA opened a call for Assemblage art. The title of the show is ‘En Masse, an Assemblage Showcase.’ I first thought, oh, I have lots of ideas for this…a collage, some metal pieces. But as I came face-to-face with the materials, I discovered how difficult it is to bring pieces together while keeping the ‘whole’ relevant, significant, and concise. Things have to work in concert. It was a struggle, but as I approached the deadline, the piece I was working on began to make sense and meld.

But how does one know, until it is experienced by the viewers? The show opening is April 13th, from 5 to 7pm. Come by and let me know if the piece is one with a heart, or is it dead in its expression. The show is on from April 13 – May 25, 2019.
